Lawyer Joke and Daily Devotion:
Friday, November 22, 2013
An old, stingy lawyer was dying and was determined to prove wrong the old saying; "You can't take it with you."
He told his wife to go down to the bank and withdraw enough money to fill two pillowcases. His plan: Put the bags directly over his bed and when he died grab them on his way up to heaven. One day the old ambulance chaser died. When his wife was up cleaning in the attic one day, she came across the forgotten pillowcases.
She then said to herself, “That old fool. I knew he should have had me put them in the basement!"
Daily Devotion from Bedside Blessings by Charles Swindoll for November 22nd:
You do not have to pay the price to grow and expand intellectually. The mind neither requires it nor demands it. If, however, you want to experience the joy of discovery and the pleasure of plowing new and fertile soil, effort is required.
Light won't automatically shine upon you, nor will truth silently seep into your head by means of rocking-chair osmosis. . . .It's up to you. It's your move.
"The mind of man plans his way, but the LORD directs his steps."-Proverbs 16:9
